Oil Storage


Palm oil mill project is designed with a tank for storage crude palm oil after clarification process, before dispatch from the mill. The storage temperature of bulk palm oil is controlled around 50°C, so that to reduce the oxidation rate of oil. Hot water or low-pressure steam-heating coils are used in the storage silo to prevent fractionation and solidification. The storage tanks/silo in our palm oil mill projects are all lined with suitable protective coating, effectively prevent iron contamination.

Oil Storage Tank

Oil storage tank is mainly used as a crude palm oil (CPO) storage tank during palm oil process. It guarantees a certain storage temperature and good sealing. It is useful for temporary storage of crude palm oil.

  • Kill contaminating micro-organisms and destruct enzymes in the fresh palm fruits by heating during sterilization process.
  • Prevent microbial growth by drying before storage. Low moisture content can prolong the shelf life of palm oil.
